Happy New year!!!!! I can’t believe that it is 2013. It feels just like yesterday it was 2012 hahaha!! Did everyone have fun? I hope you did! I can’t believe all of the things that has happened in 2012. I mean, I learned how to bake! Just about 4 months ago, I made my first homemade cookies! Now, I’ve made doughnuts…and a variety…..they are Jam Filled, Chocolate Filled, Cinnamon-Sugar and Powdered Sugar!! (I made these 3 days ago though.)Of course, I did have the aid of my mom to fry the doughnuts. I was too scared and dealing with hot oil is a big “No-No” to my mom. She’s awesome because she was deep-frying doughnuts at nearly midnight! As the usual, I did have people over, well my friend Angello was there. It was only my family and Angellos family. But we’re so close, we have SUPER fun!!!!! Well, I have to talk about these doughnuts, Silly me! They are soo adorable and yummy. I conquered doughnuts but I fear I will only make 2 batches a year! The oil part is what scares me. I mean why do doughnuts NEED oil? Why can’t they just bake? I guess that even if doughnuts can bake, they just aren’t as delicious. Oh well, I’m just goingto have to learn how to fry when I get older of course. ANYWAYS, I need to stop talking already! I feel like you guys are probably bored out of your minds right now!
